Embrace Change - Creativity for the Future
The Laurie Dake Challenge
The Laurie Dake Challenge is created with the aim to promote cross‐disciplinary geoscience and engineering integration within universities. Each participating university will have a multi‐disciplinary team of full time geoscience and petroleum engineering students, with a maximum of one PhD student per team.
The competition starts with an assignment prepared by each team, after this first round ten teams will be selected to submit the Field plan, the jury will select the six finalist teams. All teams work with the same data set, provided by BP this year.
The six winning teams will be supported with three travel grants to present their field plan to an expert jury during the 81st EAGE Conference & Exhibition at 2 June 2019 in London, UK.
Teams can consist of full‐time students from some or all of the following disciplines:
- Reservoir engineering
- Production engineering
- Petroleum economics
- Petroleum Engineering
Integration is the key!
